    I just watched this for the second time and didn't realize this until after you mentioned it but ... yes, I realize it too. He took the picture in a *color* frame (going backwards) but yet had it in his pocket in the warehouse shot (where black & white turns to color).

    Other questions I have (other than the ones already addressed on the salon.com site):

    Remembers what the chart on the wall is for immediately goes to it and posts pictures up (scene after he goes back into diner and picks up stuff Natalie left for him that he forgot)

    Remembers hotel clerks name is Burt in the scene where he forgot his key and Burt tells him hes been ripping him off

    Remembers that he didnt kill Dodd when he arrives at Natalies and asked who the fuck is Dodd? It has certainly been more than 15 minutes.

    Remembers she has lost somebody; writes it down a long time later (after being in bed with her and she is almost asleep)

    Why is he in a hotel room and not in his house?

    Doesnt remember it is his truck at the scene where he kills Teddy? Did he buy it before his wifes death? Why doesnt he remember that its his?

    Knows its not his room when Dodd is in the closet how??

    Dodd is peeing in the bathroom when Leonard is in the shower doesnt notice the shower is running and there are clothes on the floor??!!??

    Knows the guy chasing him is Dodd as soon as he sees the note in his pocket how does he know that immediately?

    Seems to remember the Jag is his car even though he doesnt look at the picture

    Remembers who the escort is even though he is sleeping when she slams the door to the bathroom doesnt ask her who she is; just asks her to leave

    How does he remember to make tattoos of the new facts?

    Remembers what room # he is in when he calls the front desk to tell them hes not taking any calls (b&w) doesnt look at the key

    Gun he uses in the color flashback of where his wife is being raped is identical to the one he steals from Dodd

    WHERE did he get the name John G?

    Teddy shows him the photo of him bare-chested and naked at the warehouse where he kills Jimmy he gave it to Leonard under the door in an envelope marked take my call in the b&w scene in the Jimmy scene Lenny has it and doesnt hand it to Teddy

    Jimmy knows about Leonard and tells him about him knows hes staying at the Discount- how?

    When Lenny walks into the office (b&w scene) calls him Officer Gammil could be less than 15 minutes

    How does Jimmy know Leonard?

    Why does Leonard want Jimmy to strip before he kills him?

    Jimmy (dead) says Sammy why?

    Why does Teddy check Jimmys shoes for fit?

    Does anyone have answers to these? If so please email me at melissabussey@alliantfs.com.

    Thanks!!

    :-) Mel

    Some continutiy issues

    I have seen Memento four times now and have read alot about it..(though I still cant find those great Memento news groups or websites other than the original site- if anyone has sites please post)
    So I have a continuity problem with one part.. we see Lenard take a picture of Teddy earlier in the movie.. chronologicly later and towards the end of the movie, chronologicly earlier, he has that picture. Anyone else notice this?
